Army Surplus stores
Forget Macy’s, Bloomingdales and all that: Army Surplus is where it’s at. Half my wardrobe is from Army Surplus.
When I travel, I seek out a local Army Surplus store everywhere. From Mexico to Hong Kong, I’ve found the most amazing jackets, shirts, boots, badges, knives and rare objects. Iceberg Army Navy on Broadway in Soho is pretty good, but for the good stuff go to Delta Force on Vernon Boulevard in Long Island City. What they don’t have on the shelf, they have up the block in storage. The guy tried to sell me a bazooka with a tri-pod the other day. Seriously. I told him to email me a picture and I’d think about it.
